Haitian police have made an arrest in the case of the fatal shooting of a Marianist brother April 25.

Brother Richard Joyal, 62, had just withdrawn $1,000 from a bank in Port-au-Prince when two men on a motorcycle confronted the Marianist.

The passenger shot Brother Joyal three times and then left the scene.
Haitian authorities later found the cash in the brother's wallet.

Brother Joyal had been on a temporary mission in Haiti.
